Encyclopedia > Marshall Brown

Marshall Brown (1920 - 1983) was a jazz musician and educator. He played trombones and, less often, bass trumpet or euphonium.

Brown was little recorded, and devoted most of his career to education. He earned a music degree from New York University.

Brown received some attention for performing in a quartet with Pee Wee Russell in the early 1960's. While Russell was most often associated with dixieland or swing music, their quartet performed more adventurous, free jazz-oriented pieces, including songs by Ornette Coleman and John Coltrane.

Brown also perfomed or recorded with Ruby Braff and Beaver Harris and Lee Konitz

Thurgood Marshall was the great-grandson of a slave and the son of a dining car waiter and a schoolteacher.
Marshall graduated first in his class from Howard in 1933, and he was drafted by Houston to help with the civil rights battles then being waged by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
Marshall believed that the Constitution was inherently defective in its acceptance of slavery and gave much credit to those who "refused to acquiesce in outdated notions of 'liberty,' 'justice,' and 'equality,' and who worked to better them.
